November 1st 2006, aged 3 yrs
Katie's sweet Rottie girl diagnosed early
Sept. '06 with lymphoma and lost too soon.
I love this picture of
Ruby at the Dog park
Ruby laying on my bedroom floor
The last picture I have of her
"Well I knew this day would come but why did it have to
be so soon, she was only 3. Last night for Halloween we dressed her
up with butterfly wings and she greeted kids at the door. She didn't
even give me a small sign that she might be feeling badly. She
showed off her wings to everyone that walked by.
My fiance got up to go to work this
morning at 5:30am and she didn't come into the kitchen when he had
breakfast he looked all over the house and could not find her. He
somehow found her in the dark behind a bush in the back yard still
alive but unable to get up. She had dug herself a hole and laid in
it. He came upstairs crying and told me to call the vet. We had our
vet meet us and we both said that we loved her and gave her kisses
until her suffering was over. We sat in the room for a half an hour
petting her even though she was already gone. I don't know how I am
going to get through this.
We walked back into the house and no
one is there to greet us. I looked through my pictures and found the
one of her sweet face looking at the camera with wings on and just
lost it. The last picture I took of her and she has wings on. I am
so sad, angry, and every emotion that comes with this. It is not
fair that so many people have to live through this.
Thank you for letting me talk about
this. It is very hard to talk and cry at the same time, but I can
type and cry.
Katie and Angel Ruby"
